    Check/ask if your equipment was sprayed also?

    I am a little west of you and I over winter in 2 deeps.

    Re: Doing a cutout this weekend

    If you have one or can borrow a ladder stand that will work.
    I used one of mine on a trap-out last year it worked great.
    Tell the wife you need one and you can use it for bee's and HUNTING.

    If so set the ladder up beside it so you could get down when finished.
